App is great for documents

Note some PDF's are encoded in such a way that there is no text. I have used this on several PDF's are were documents sent to me. In my case I want to extract numbers and tables of numbers to put into a spreadsheet or database. This program works flawlessly for that. Certainly the price is right.

Worked beautifully with huge document

1100-page book PDF, in spreads, with all kinds of formats, footnotes, tables, illustrations. Extracted the text all right, lightning fast.

[Could it be that those getting blank documents are feeding it non-text PDFs —bitmaps?]

Works as advertised

It worked fine, converted hundreds of PDF text documents to plain text in an instant.
My guess is those who said it didn't work didn't use PDF text documents but actual images, perhaps scanned documents. OCR is out of scope of this small app.
